Here’s What to Do When Your Furnace Won’t Ignite

We are trudging through the last several weeks of winter but we still are relying on our furnaces, especially during cool nights. Not much is worse than turning in at night and realizing your furnace won’t start up. If your furnace won’t turn on, here are a couple things you can check yourself prior to calling Stevenson Service Experts. 

Check Air Filters 

You should change standard air filters monthly. If you don’t, they can get clogged, blocking air flow and resulting in a furnace malfunction. 

Check Your Thermostat 

Start by turning the thermostat up a few degrees to get the furnace to turn on. If the current room temperature is higher than the thermostat, the heating system won’t turn on. Also, make sure the system switch is on “heat” or “auto.” 

Check the Power 

It may seem ridiculous, but verify the power switch next to the furnace is “On.” Even gas furnaces use electricity so confirm the breaker has not tripped and that the power switch was not accidently moved to the “Off” position. 

If you check all these things and your heating system will still not start up, give Stevenson Service Experts a call at 614-334-3192 and we’ll come out and take care of you as soon as possible.
